GE Front Loading Washer Model WBVH5100HWW
by Mike Metzger
Bought this machine about 3 years ago. It gets fairly heavy use (family of 6). Apparently way more than it was designed for. Replaced the main pulley after about 1 1/2 years. Now the belt and pulley both need replacing - and a crack in the pulley caused the belt to dislodge and cut through the plastic tub about 1/2". No water leak as yet, but the structure is severly weakened. First repair was about $50 (do all my own work). This repair would be closer to $100. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT OVERALL! A three year old machine and at this point I can't justify fixing it knowing I'll have to do it all again in about a year. Good-bye GE...
